Low Back Pain Relief in Anchorage

person with low back painDoes chronic lower back pain interfere with your daily life? Do you find yourself constantly searching for relief? At Bilan Chiropractic, we believe in understanding the root cause of your pain and treating it effectively, rather than merely silencing symptoms.

By implementing specific chiropractic adjustments, we aim to improve your spinal function. This restoration allows your discs and soft tissues to heal, reduces nerve involvement, eases pain, and promotes better stability.


Decoding the Causes of Lower Back Pain

Pain is your body’s alarm system – a signal that something is not right. Ignoring this signal is akin to removing the battery from a beeping smoke detector! Two common culprits behind back pain are:

  • Facet Joints: These nerve-rich joints on the backside of each spinal bone may cause pain if they’re not moving correctly.
  • Spinal Discs: Trauma to these discs can cause the soft, pulpy material inside to bulge, putting pressure on nearby nerves.

Other Conditions That Trigger Lower Back Pain

Low back pain can also stem from:

  • Lumbar Herniated Disc: This occurs when the jelly-like center of a spinal disc breaks through the tough outer layer, inflaming a nearby nerve root.
  • Degenerative Disc Disease: As people age, their lumbar discs gradually lose hydration, decreasing spinal cushioning and leading to painful tissue tears or collapse.
  • Facet Joint Dysfunction: Each disc in the lumbar spine is backed by two facet joints. These joints have high nerve density, making them extremely sensitive to stress.

Your Choices for Natural Care

While we’ve seen countless patients benefit from safe and natural chiropractic care, you do have other options:

  • Ignore it: However, untreated spinal problems may worsen over time.
  • Bed Rest: Prolonged rest may actually exacerbate the issue.
  • Therapy: This could potentially stress malfunctioning joints.
  • Medicine: While it numbs the body, it doesn’t address the root cause.
  • Surgery: This should be considered as a last resort.

Frequently Asked Questions

Isn’t some back pain normal?

Pain of any kind, at any age, is a signal that something isn’t right. While minor aches and pains may seem insignificant, if the underlying problem remains unaddressed, it may gradually worsen over time, becoming more difficult and costly to resolve.

What about muscle relaxers?

As chiropractors, we don’t dispense drugs. Instead, we rely on natural methods. For example, properly applied ice can have an analgesic effect without the unwanted side effects associated with certain medications. Not to mention our gentle, focused, and completely tailored adjustments to your needs!

How does chiropractic work?

Chiropractic works because you’re a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine can interfere with vital nerve communication. Specific spinal adjustments aim to improve mind/body communications and facilitate health.

Does insurance pay for chiropractic?

These days, most policies cover necessary chiropractic care. Even if your insurance doesn’t cover it fully, we strive to make chiropractic care affordable for everyone.
